The performance computation of the Crypto-processor implemented on SoC platform is research of interest now. The traditional buses or wires have the problem of scalability, complexity and timing, from here we target this point and present a novel Network On Chip (NOC) architecture to overcome the cons. Network On Chip (NOC) consists of storage and I/O resources interconnected by network of switches for network computation. Two ultra lightweight cryptographic algorithms are presented in this paper namely PRESENT and KATAN. It is developed using Altera Cyclone IV E. The NOC architecture consists of different topology, switching and routing techniques based efficiency requirements. Finally the computed efficiency for the processor running at 330 MHz and taking 5.047 sec for computation using 0.323 mm2 cell area in 180 nm technology.
